Winter Wonderland in Arras
My intent was to visit one of France's more renown Christmas Markets and ended up discovering a perfect destination spot. I choose Arras Because it was getting well into the last minute shopping crunch and I could not imagine being buried in a large town with tons of tourists. Arras is one of the best known markets and it is described as being smaller and more doable for a day's excursion. Even more enticing is that Arras is only a forty minute direct train ride from the Gare de Nord train station in Paris.
